Zoila Esperanza's story

Zoila is 53 years old, single, and has three children. She lives with her mother in the city of Ventanas in the province of Los Ríos. She is a member of the "25 de Febrero" [February 25] Communal Bank, which is located in the Guabito precinct of the parish of Zapotal, in Ventanas Canton. She works in agriculture, including cacao, and she grows corn and coffee. She also works raising animals such as chickens and pigs.

Zoila is requesting this loan to buy urea, liquid pesticide and insecticide. With the help of the loan she will be able to buy what she needs for her agricultural activities. She buys what she needs in Ventanas every fifteen days or monthly. Her dream is to work very hard for her family’s wellbeing. The challenges she faces are the pests that harm her crops. In her free time she likes to sing traditional carnival songs.
